I have a townhouse on the beach in Ormond by the Sea which is 2 towns south of Palm Coast. PC is very nice and seems very laid back, like after 9 pm they shut the lights off and roll up the sidewalks. The ICW is a 30 zone but you can run from Daytona to St Augstine in less than an hour with very few idle/slow zones (mostly at bridges) with very little enforcement. FPC dd the Daytona PR there in 05 and we ran from Daytona to St Augustine pretty much WFO and were penalized with extra heavy enforcement in 06!

Nice PC homes on the ICW can run in the millions, several high end developments/ golf courses. George Thoroughgood is the local celebrity since he recently moved back. I have an acquaintance that lives there and spends most of his nightlife in Daytona, Ormond, and Orlando since there isn't much going on in PC. The boating is great with the exception of the inlets being 50 +/- miles apart. Everytime we run the ICW we see dolphins everywhere. Matanzas Inlet is good for flats boats under 20 feet only! I have a 15 whaler up there and it looked too sketchy for me since the current screams through the shallow channel.

I'm about 30 miles south of Palm Coast, and it got down to freezing only one night last year. We haven't had a freeze here yet this year. Also, I'm farther inland, so it tends to get hotter, and colder here than it does closer to the ocean. Mostly just gorgeous weather. Last week I was driving around, it was a perfect 72 degrees and a few high puffy clouds, I was thinking to myself, "Why would anyone want to live anywhere else".

Best thing is, compared to south Florida, traffic is nonexistent.
